Family & Newborn FAQ
How will I receive my images?
Sessions are delivered through a high-resolution online gallery. You will be able to download your images directly to your computer from your online gallery.
Do you offer prints?
Yes! You will have the option of purchasing high-quality prints and fine- art prints, directly through your online gallery.
Do you travel outside of Atlanta for sessions?
Absolutely! Traveling for sessions is always a treat for me!
What happens if my outdoor session gets rained out?
I wish I could order sunny and 70 for every session! However, there is always a possibility of rain on the day of your outdoor session. We will watch the radar leading up to the day of your session. If it is raining or there is bad weather, we will work together to find another date that works for everyone or move the session to an indoor location or studio. There is no fee to reschedule due to rainy weather.
How long is a session family session with you?
Depending on the nature of the session, our time together typically lasts 30 minutes to 1 hour. With young kids, I try to be creative in maximizing our time together. My goal is for you is to leave your session feeling unrushed and knowing we had just the right amount of time together!
What if my kids do not cooperate?
The good news is.... I'm not a videographer! I am very comfortable around kids and not much surprises me. Moms with young kids often tell me that they can't believe that, despite the fact that their session felt like a whirlwind, they received so many great images. My goal is for your kids to have fun and not feel like they are having their photo made. We will play games, laugh, and create some great candid captures. If they just need a minute... that's fine!
When should I schedule my newborn session?
I recommend scheduling newborns within the 10 day window of their birth. They are the sleepiest and easiest to capture those first few days. I usually pencil in a date near the due date and if they are born earlier or later, we can always tweak the session date.
What time of day do you schedule sessions?
For the best light, I prefer to shoot outdoor sessions early morning or 1-2 hours before sunset.
Newborn sessions are available on weekday mornings at 10 am.
How long will it take to receive our images?
You can expect to receive your images 2-3 weeks after your session. I put a lot of time and care into editing your images to make sure the edits are crisp, consistent and beautiful.
How soon in advance should I book a session?
If you think you would like to book a session, go ahead and reach out!
Fall family sessions typically book up very quickly. I suggest booking your fall family sessions late summer / early fall.
However, don't be afraid to reach out last minute. I often have last minute openings.
Where do your heirloom sessions take place?
All heirloom sessions are held at a photography studio located on the Marietta Square.
How much does an heirloom session cost?
Please reach out to me directly for my current pricing!
What should my little one wear?
For little boys, I recommend a smock outfit or collared shirt. For little girls, I recommend a dress or smock dress and a bow. There are some great kid's heirloom portraits on Pinterest for inspiration.
Do you have any recommendations of where to shop?
Yes! Here are a few companies that carry some really sweet heirloom pieces!

Can I change my little one into their outfit when I arrive?
Absolutely! In fact, I recommend it. You can bring their heirloom outfit to the studio and change them when you arrive.
When will the images be ready?
No later than 2-3 weeks after your session date.
What are my options for printing and framing?
You will be able to order fine art-prints and framed images straight from your gallery from a high-end professional printing lab that I have personally selected.
Will all of my heirlooms be in color?
Your heirloom gallery will include a combination of color and black and white images.
